Take Yet Another Peek at The Lizard in 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

Step aside Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Sandman, Venom, and Harry Osborn on a floating snowboard, the rebooted Spider-Man has a new cinematic nemesis.  Though the tarpaulin of secrecy surrounding the appearance of The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man has largely been thrown aside, public looks at the monstrous bad guy have mostly been quick and partial (unless you saw the Comic-Con footage or the sizzle reel).  Today, we have a new straight-ahead look at the digital villain, including his face and his rather intimidating claws.

The image is not a still from the film, but is instead a promotional peek at a merchandise tie-in.  Merchandise for Sony's would-be blockbuster has provided most of our best ideas of The Lizard's appearance, and it'd be a shame for that to change now. 

This particular bit of merchandise is a poster of the bad guy, for any tyke who just loves the tragic arc of a scientist whose desire to mend his mutilated body turns him into a monstrous reptile.

The image started out at Trends International, but it was Comic Book Movie who brought it to the world's attention.

Rhys Ifans, who you'll remember as the mayonnaise-eating flatmate Spike in Notting Hill, plays Dr. Curt Connors.  In this reboot, Connors isn't a teacher or professor to Peter Parker, but is instead an Oscorp genetic scientist who worked closely with Parker's father before he vanished years ago.  He's still motivated by his missing arm, though.

Andrew Garfield steps into the webbed spandex of Spidey, with Emma Stone co-starring as Peter's first love, the thoroughly doomed Gwen Stacy.  The rest of the cast includes Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, Embeth Davidtz, Campbell Scott, Chris Zylka, Irrfan Khan, and Amber Stevens, with the requisite cameo from Stan Lee, who created Spider-Man with artist Steve Ditko fifty years back.

Snag some Rogue 3D Eyewear before The Amazing Spider-Man does its thing in theaters on July 3rd.
